Beautiful. That is the GOOD kind of fire to see in the sky.

Beautiful capture, as always, Pietro. I can hardly wait for the winter Olympics in Canada.
Happy Friday!

This was interesting - I like this fire - thanks for showing it :)

Thank you for sharing a view of your world. Lovely shots.

Deve essere stato veramente emozionante il momento dell'accensione del braciere che apriva le olimpiadi invernali lìi a Torino nel 2006.

Un abbraccio Pietro!

How wonderful to actually have been there. I'm a little envious.
Love the shots! The flame against the sky and behind the branches is a beautiful view!

What a fantastic capture for the day, Pietro!! And that is the kind of fire that is beautiful to see in the sky! How fortunate to be able to see it for real! Thanks for sharing! Wishing you a lovely weekend!


The tree branches, the many-faceted sky, the beautiful brazier tower, the orange-hued flames,
beautiful images!

I've missed visiting for a while, Pietro. I can see I've lots to catch up on.

I love your composition in these shots - the straight tree trunks mimicking the brazier tower in the first one and then the curving branches and twigs echoing the curved pipes in the second. Very harmonious.

Very nice photos and a most interesting torch!
All twisted made it very nice.

Terrific subject for skywatch.

A moment in history, Pietro. I always find the lighting of the Olympic flame a very moving thing to watch but have never seen it in person. Lucky you! And great shots.

nice pics.

Breath-taking photos, the second closeup is really so nice, fire and pipe art makes me happy.

My world.
I do not think I waited for this day, Pietro;) Long waited 'cold' arrived in my town finally:( The winter silence upon us, and that is all happening 'outside':)
I will enjoy my snowy weekend to be able to catch the snowflakes -if I can leave my toast, eggs, hot cocoa and sitting by indoors:)

Well, wish you the best energy and warmth over the w-end~

Beautiful shots, Pietro! Great skywatch photo!

The Olympics are right around the corner... beautiful photo of the flame to get us "fired up!"

I love Nihal's comment above about winter and that wintry breakfast!

Un momento che non mi sono perso! Belle immagini, ho vissuto le Olimpiadi in modo coinvolgente, ho messo bandiere al balcone per salutare la fiaccola olimpica che passava sotto casa mia..grazie Pietro.

Wow! Just beautiful, Pietro!

Torino, peut être à la fois très classique et chargée d'histoire, et à la pointe de la tecnologie dans sa modernité. C'est bien aussi de ne pas s'enliser dans son passé.

Bonsoir et bien je pense que je vais venir chez toi et sur cette photo ainsi il ne fera pas froid.
Bonne soirée
